Storm Uri put a stop to food deliveries to West Texas. Roads were slick with ice and rolling blackouts made keeping warm difficult. Wayfinder reached out to Weidner Apartment Homes in Midland, TX on Thursday to find out how to help. The immediate need was food to help residents get through the weekend. With no time to spare, Wayfinder went to work securing a refrigerated truck in Phoenix, AZ, and filling it with the much-needed food supplies. At 9:45 PM on Thursday, the truck was loaded and ready to go. William and Brendan drove straight through the night and arrived at Weidner’s office in Midland at 1 pm Friday.
A large and wonderful group of the Weidner team were there to meet them and help unload the groceries. Together they packed nearly 300 food boxes and the local Weidner team went to work delivering food to those in need in Midland, Odessa, and Abilene, TX.
We are all so thankful to be part of organizations that truly care about the communities they serve. What a blessing to be able to help our friends in West Texas in this time of need. Thank you to all who have helped in this process by donating funds, time, and encouragement to make this happen so quickly.
